Sepia Saturday - 186 - 20 July 2013

"We don't need to have a long journey just to find love because in our home we have love and that's the family." - Andrea G. Matias

SEPIA SATURDAY - and vacation - well for some, not personally mine, not yet anyway.

A bit of a twist this Saturday, as I have three adorable animals from the wild kingdom of- oops, in reality they are three grand-delights, that keep me on steady and ready-alert mode!  Is that thunder in the background?  No not at all, those are feet, running!

Ten glorious days of wonder, imagination and active duty as travel agent/concierge for a 3, 4 and 5 year old, keeping peace and tranquility directly from my command-center.

Of course there will be water, in several forms.

Plenty of instructions, treasure maps, and inter-active story times!

Oh, I really should introduce my assistant for these intense ten days!

Meet Mr. - oh sorry he's a bit occupied at the moment!

Note: Sunday I've planned an exciting family-together-outing which includes
my Assistant too!

Ha! Ha!


So please don't worry about me.  I'll be right behind them, every step of the way, up and down and all around!  Even, if it does appear that I'm otherwise tied up at the moment, really all is well!

There will be no escaping! HA! HA!

So, please meet me (right here after dark) and once these lovely little munchkins of mine are sound asleep and dreaming of the next wild adventures they can lure me into tomorrow!

That is of course, as long as I myself doesn't crash and explore a bit of dreamland myself!

Ironically, although I haven't followed our theme, it does seem quite possible that the photo Marilyn has served us is similar to my duties this week.

What do you think?

For other Sepia Saturday posts go here.

Oh, maybe you're duties are more similar than you think - you may well need armour and you could have some hard-fought battles! 3-year-olds can be pretty tough opponents! Have fun.

Laughter in summer. What lucky munchkins! Fun :-)

What do you think that girl in the first photo found lurking down her costume.

Little Nell said...

Karen, I'm surprised you have enough energy left for blogging! What a warrior you are to be sure.

Kristin said...

Your assistant seems to be having a very relaxing time of it.

I am never one to flatter as a tactic, but I had always assumed that the little todler on the giant Teddy Bear
(your avatar) was your child not grandchild !! Have a nice day !!

Fun post! I remember those days. I always thought a couple grands visiting could be called a "house full of kids." They seemed to be everywhere.

Mike Brubaker said...

I think your essay fits a "Guardian" theme just fine. Hope you have a good time as the spear carrier.


I think you picked up on the vigilance, [protecting your own.
Enjoy your time!!
Should I Fedex some Tylenols?
Or let the Mister pick some up!!

Lucky them to be looked after by you, lucky you to have them to watch over. And as always, lucky us for getting to read your posts.

Yes a warrior you must be to care for a 3,4 and 5 year old.

Love that shot on the utility pole!

Funny huging a tree.

I'd love to have that tablecloth in the photo with our assistant. That's a real classic.
Fun post.

Bob Scotney said...

I think I would settle for just being the assistant; the rest looks too hectic for me.

Remember riding backwards in a station wagon? We never had one, and I loved it when a friend's family took us somewhere and we could ride "in the way back." But don't ask me to ride backwards today!

Loved the joy in this post.
